Mason Lockwood (Taylor Kinney) may be dead, but his werewolf legacy could soon kick into high gear. Young actor Stephen Amell has joined the cast of CW’s The Vampire Diaries as a character with a connection to Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) uncle.
So, exactly what role does he play in Mystic Falls’ ongoing werewolf-vampire shenanigans? Producers recently revealed this about Amell’s character: “Stephen plays Brady — an old friend of Mason Lockwood who blows into town with a vengeance. [He’s a] loyal friend or your worst enemy depending on who you are.”
Brady is confirmed to appear in two episodes, one of which is filming right now. In addition to Amell’s Brady character, Michaela McManus joins the cast for the Dec. 9 episode “By the Light of the Moon,” as Jules, a friend of Mason’s from Florida who comes looking for her missing buddy.
Vampire Diaries fans, I have to ask: do you think Brady will cause or prevent problems when he arrives in town? Could this be a vengeance thing?
